The Heritage Foundation Called for Individual Mandate Back in 1989!

Yes, you read that correctly! The Heritage Foundation, the championed conservative think tank, called for the creation of a Federal government created universal health care system with the creation of an 'individual mandate'. This needs to be shown to all those fools who are brainwashed by the left vs right charade paradigm, an allude to the reality of the Corporate Collective government in the District of Criminals. Wasn't it the Heritage Foundation who called for a 'government shutdown' to block the funding of Obamacare? Here's the transcript of the Heritage lecture on 'Assuring Affordable Healthcare for All Americans'

"Editor’s Note: This article is written from the perspective of a liberal who actually seeks to defend Obamacare. This is a position we certainly do not endorse. We only want to show beyond any possible doubt that Obama’s much vaunted reform of the healthcare system is actually a hardcore conservative idea. All the immense complexities and frustrations emanate from the fact the law wishes to accommodate the dynamic of the capitalist market, which is to put profit ahead of everything else. Thus the simplicity and efficiency of a “Medicare for All” (Simgle Payer) formula is jettisoned in favor of a ludicrous Rube Goldberg scheme that satisfies no one.—P. Greanville"

This is no surprise to anyone. Remember Dolecare in 1996? That is basically Obamacare, without Obamacare's spending cuts.
